In reply to Toby, legality of sharing unused meds, posted by Susan on January 8, 1999, at 9:18:12

Thanks Susan for the thought! I am finding that living on my own with no real reserves financially is not so easy. There are constantly more bills and glitches. I don't see any reason why the ins co. will cover Prozac but not Remeron at the lower price. Someone on a board somewhere makes these decisions. If the Remeron you have was not a year old it would be great, but I was told to flush the scripts of Paxil, Effexor, Welbutrin and Pamelor I was given. I never was given samples and each script was only for a small supply. Thanks for the thought.

> Toby, if someone has a 90 day supply of a medication that cannot be used because of adverse reactions should that med (ex. Remeron) be flushed down the toilet or can it be given to someone who has a real financial need? It seems like such a waste to flush it when someone who has the same prescription could use it. Wouldn't it be the same as receiving samples? Do medications lose therapeutic properties after a year? I know it is illegal to share meds but if someone already uses them what is the harm? Thanks for your input.
